    "PowderFlanger"

    Sign in to disable this ad
    WE'VE HAD MONTHS TO PREPARE FOR THE CHALLENGE, AND IT'S FINALLY MARCH 5TH (so of course, I recorded this tonight, lol).

    "Powderfinger" gave me permission to maul his tune, so I did.

    It's a cool song, I just heard it in my feeble noggin a little differently than Drew did, soooooo...I used the flanger a LOT, lol. Actually, the original recording is so good, I didn't really wanna' copy it. Okay, that's a total lie...I really WANTED to copy it, but when I tried, it sounded...ummm...asslike.

    ...and for Mixmkr, the fade is :45 seconds long. I expect a card this Christmas.

    PF's has a conga loop, which I think fits perfectly. I tried some 'world percussion' samples originally, but I decided to just go with that droning KICK, RIDE, SNAAAAAARE thing, ala "Johnny Cougar," (before he remembered his roots and started sucking). The snare is a direct sample from "Small Town"...HUUUGE, ridiculous reverb.

    Chris--I think you're first, man! I like this. Its a cool song and you definitely put your stamp on it, which is a good thing in my book. I really dug the drum sound. (Wait...you hate drums...and these sound cool...whassup with that?) I like the verb on 'em too!

    Only crit, the BGV's around 1:28 kinda go astray. On the plus side, the rest of them are sounding great.

    There is a thing you do where you sing a third and drop to a second tone (in the scale) that is almost a trademark thing. You did it a couple times in this and I dug that. Nice acoustics and the electric works with this too.

    Thanks for being first...maybe there is hope for me...you better pray there is cause its your song! I think we are gonna have some fun in the next few days.

    There's a certain irony here that's not lost on me...lol. I mean, you OWN the freakin' site that lets most of us have access to do stuff like this...


    ...and you can't listen.








    Haven't forgotten about the mic, btw. Gimme' a couple.

    Well, what I sacrifice for keeping the dream alive is really not so bad in my life.

    Heck, if one day I can do nothing but listen to music, that's it...

    When they burry me, my hope is that I experience eternal music (with class, not $$$ signs), that'll be my payback.
